Don't be lured in by its "bargain price". The Hotel is old and terribly run down, we had 2 separate poky rooms with no windows to the outside world. The rooms and bathrooms were tidy enough but the bed linens and pillows are old and dingy. The staff didn't really care about anything, our light blew leaving our room (due... More

I put a few photos to show the state of my room at this hotel. As you see the place looks old and nott too clean. The sheets were clean though and there was a cleaning lady who did a very quick cleaning every day. Very central location too.

The whole place (rooms, communal kitchen, and lounge areas) need a thorough cleaning and garbage pick-up. It was not at all quiet - next door a disco ran all night on the week-ends and the restaurant nearby played... More

I read very few about this hotel and wanted to have a try. Very well located, you're in the middle of everything: The main tourist street is a few steps from the Caracol door. The owner looks a bit like Beatlejuice but he is very kind and gives a good welcome. The rooms are no very big, but we had... More
